I started getting all the ingrediants ready and was looking forward to eating tacos, but being the retard i am, i didn’t look at the expiration date till i was about to make the tacos. It expired on July 6, 2012. So will i get sick if i still eat them?
Taco shells have some fat in them–after all, they’re fried. The fat can go rancid from exposure to oxygen. Rancidity affects the smell and taste, but it’s not really unhealthy. If the taco shells smelled and tasted okay, they’re okay. If they smelled a little ‘off’, they weren’t as good to eat but they were still okay to eat.
Did the taco shells have mold on them? The mold looks like blue or green spots on the taco shell. Next, did they smell funny? Expired food almost lays smells funny. Last, did the taco shells taste funny? If you said yes to any of these, then you have a 75% chance of getting sick. Symptons include: diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and a loss of appetite.
Bet it DOES NOT say expired but rather, “best if used by”
If they taste good, they are good.
The ONLY thing that could be is they might smell a bit old but if thats the case, then don’t eat them..Its not dangerous, just doesn’t taste good.
Foods like crackers, chips, taco shells, breads, cakes, etc don’t get dangerous when they get old, they just don’t taste good any more.
I seriously doubt you will become ill. If anything the taco shells may be a little stale. You are about 60 days after the expiration and they will probably be fine.
Taco Shell Mold
i have the case of the munchies an i want to make some tacos ..but not too sure if its okay to eat them or not . they were expired in 2013..hmm..
yes,but next time buy a new tacos shell.Make sure to at expiration date its important!
Put in oven at 200 for 30 minutes. This will refresh them.
the expiration date is the last date they can be sold. it is a VERY conservative date.
as long as they are stored correctly you can eat them as long as they appear wholesome.
i.e. if you are willing to eat them, they are probably fine.
No,unless they are contaminated.They are cooled only less crunchy.
